Have donkey. Will travel.

It’s Friday of National Library Week 2010, so I thought I would highlight one of my heroes in librarianship.

Meet Louis Soriano.

An educator in La Gloria, Colombia, Soriano shares the joy of reading with kids in rural Colombian villages by way of donkey. His Biblioburro brings books to kids who, otherwise, might never know the joy of reading.

Watch the video below to be truly inspired. Soriano gets it. This is librarianship in its purest form.

Anyone know where I can get a donkey?
